Publisher's Summary

First published three years ago before the print edition of Women Who Run with the Wolves made publishing history, this original audio edition quickly became an underground best seller. For it's insights into the inner lives of women, it established Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes as one of the most important voices of our time in the fields of Jungian psychology, myth, and women's mysteries.

Drawing from her work as a psychoanalyst and cantadora (keeper of old stories), Dr. Estes uses myths and folktales to illustrate how societies systematically strip away the feminine spirit. Through an exploration into the nature of the wild woman archetype, Dr. Estes helps listeners rediscover and free their own wild nature.

Empowering

At a little over 2 hours, I was able to listen to this in full in one sitting - much like sitting down to watch a movie. However, it is broken into two parts, so you could listen to part one, then take a break and come back to part two later if you wanted to do this in smaller 1 hour sittings.

I really enjoyed this. The author touches on some important topics, but does so in a gentle way. She uses fairytales from different cultures as examples to illustrate her different topics.

I am 35 and I enjoyed this immensely. I wish I could have read this book in my teens or my twenties, as I feel it would have empowered me to embrace my inner wild woman more, to really be true to myself, rather than spend my life making myself small to fit into the box that my family and society expected.

An excellent Audible rendition. I highly recommend this.

A must for all women to understand their archetypal nature

Clarissa has a natural story teller voice.
I could listen to this woman for hours!

Women who run with wolves is a rich tapestry of myth and stories of our innate nature as women.
I find it’s like Clarissa has bought out into words the things that lay deeply in me, unexpressed (till now),by the languages of this world.
It’s insightful to those who know themselves, and those who are looking to further understand their inner selves.
I love this book.
It’s something I can, and do listen too again and again.

Heartfelt and honest

Wow! This audio provides a different take on fairy tales and myths from different cultures that are female centred. Estes' narration is heartfelt and emotive. Lift your spirit and nourish your soul by making the time to listen to this in a quiet space. It deserves to be heard with your full attention. And Estes will leave you will a deeper understanding of your personal "story".
